. stand by. you're in "the situation room." next monday president obama will speak to the american people and to the world in his second inauguration speech. but after four very challenging years in office, what tone should the president strike this time around? joining us now, democratic strategist paul begala and david frum, a former white house speechwriter for george h.w. bush. also author of "why romney lost." doing very well. here's what the white house press secretary said today about the president's speech preparation. let me play the clip from jay carney. >> all i can tell you is the president in general when he works on a speech writes them long hand on a yellow pad and i've seen some yellow pads filled with writing of late around but i don't have any more details on the speech. >> both of you are former speechwriters. paul, you wrote this on the daily beast. president obama's task is much like the couple renewing their wedding vows after decades of tough but rewarding marriage. if the words are too ideal list, they will seem hollow or saccharine. if too shallow, why even bother
york. >>> well, president obama says america is on its way to a good year when it comes to the economy. but there is a big if here. ali velshi has some thoughts. he's up next. >>> president obama says he won't negotiate any spending cuts with a gun held up to the head of the american people. from the cnn money newsroom, in new york, i'm ali velshi. this is your money. apple gets a bite taken out of its stock. toyota and gm are neck and neck again. first gold and now oil. california will be a prospector's dream again. and stocks are up, but should they be? first, president obama spoke with reporters today emphasizing his position that the debt ceiling is not a license to spend more. it is about paying bills that congress has already agreed to. he likened it to stiffing the waiter at a nice restaurant after gorging on a meal. >> you don't go out to dinner, and then, you know, eat all you want, and then leave without paying the check. and if you do, you're breaking the law. >> u.s. hit the debt ceiling on december 31st. the treasury is using so-called extraordinary measures to put off any
will be the year that we accepted a nuclear iran or we went to war. for more on this, you can read my column in this week's "time" magazi magazine. let's get started. >>> when president obama chose the conservative republican for the post of defense secretary, you might not have expected opposition from the right, but you would have been wrong. while many conservatives support hagel's nomination, there is spirited opposition from the right. perhaps the first public opposition to chuck hagel was a column in "wall street journal" my foreign affairs columnist brett stevens. one of the first full throated defenses of hagel came in the "daily beast" from the editor of that website's blog and the author of the "crisis of zionism." joining me now bret stephens and peter beinart. you accused chuck hagel of being anti-semi. >> i said there was an odor. >> what evidence do you have this is the case? >> he had this famous statement that i'm sure you heard several times by now about the jewish lobby intimidating a lot of people. a lot of the discussion had to do with this line, the jewish lobby. as oppo
from getting the flu for years. wolf blitzer's off today. i'm joe johns. you're in "the situation room." we begin now with a guessing game about what is in president obama's so called comprehensive proposals to cut down on gun violence. the president and vice president are set to unveil their plans tomorrow and even though officials are trying to keep the deal under wraps, we already know what is in the plan. jessica yellin has been working her sources and joins us live now. what do you know? >> joe, today vice president biden delivered his plan to the president just a month after the newtown shootings and among the top recommendations that the president will unveil tomorrow we're told are enhanced background checks for gun sales of all kinds. the president has outlined two types of paths forward for the president. he has told legislators that he is going to give the president 19 different executive actions that the president can take essentially on his own without any congressional action and this could include better enforcement. keeping data on where the guns are. the government sto
for office. he promised to pay down the deficit at least half in his first term. the first two years of his first term he had a democratic congress house and senate. he could have done anything he wanted. instead he put through an $800 billion stimulus bill and a $1.7 trillion obama care. if he wasn't going to address it then, when is he going to address it? he is essentially holding congress hostage right now and the american people with these scare tactics. >> okay, newt gingrich addressed this whole issue on "cbs this morning" and i'll read you what he said. "it isn't a smart fight for congressional republicans to pick, because in the end, it's a threat they can't sustain. no one is going to default, no one will allow the united states to not pay its bills, no one is going to accept the economic costs. it rallies the entire business community to the president's side." so even newt gingrich says this isn't a wise fight to pick. you may feel strongly about spending cuts but this isn't the right time to fight. >> when is the right time? when is the right time? because the spending cuts neve
know that there is anywhere near true. >> i think barack obama agreed with me, the debt ceiling is there for a reason. it forces us to have this discussion. if we didn't have it, we would blow through it like we did for many years. yes, we're doing it differently now. we're talking about the debt ceiling in term of ways to have a discussion and reduce spending. is that different than it has been over the last 30 years? yes, but thankfully so. maybe if we had these discussions for the last 30 years we wouldn't be looking at $6 trillion in debt. we've done it to ourselves but this is the future and perhaps rightly so until we get things straightened out. >> we'll keep a close eye. thanks for coming to the camera. >> thanks for having me. >> still, the cost of america's crumbling of infrastructure. we're back in a moment. >> announcer: this cnbc program is sponsored by audi, truth in engineering.
